SUPERCAR enthusiasts are invited to our Cribbs Causeway dealership in Bristol this Sunday (April 17, 2016) to be one of the first in the UK to see the new 2017 Nissan GT-R.
We are hosting a Supercar Day in aid of charity on Sunday, April 17 from 10am until 3pm and the 2017 GT-R model will be the star of the show.
Simon Newson, our General Manager of the Nissan brand centre on Hayes Way, explained: “We’re so excited to have the new Nissan GT-R at our dealership this weekend. The new model features the most significant changes to Nissan’s flagship supercar since it was introduced in 2007.
“The GT-R has an exciting new look both inside and out, as well as major driving performance enhancements and key new features. Its stability and airflow have been improved thanks to a perfect blend of design and engineering.
“The horsepower and torque has also been increased – 570PS and 637Nm of torque. There is a new titanium exhaust with open valve system, enhanced aerodynamics with greater downforce, improved body rigidity for stability and handling and new 20-inch, 15-spoke lightweight forged alloy wheels.
“Inside the car is a brand new eight-inch touchscreen multi-function display, DAB digital radio and smartphone app integration, the latest generation NissanConnect satellite navigation and entertainment system and a Rotary Control on the centre console that operates the system without having to reach for the touchscreen.”
The new GT-R is available in a brand new exterior colour: Katsura Orange and also available in Storm White, Gun Metallic, Pearl Black, Daytona Blue, Ultimate Silver and Vibrant Red.
Simon added: “We are hosting the supercar event to raise money for our Charity of the Year, Dance Voice, which is a Dance Movement Psychotherapy charity based in Bedminster. There will be a GT-R merchandise raffle on the day with proceeds being donated to the charity.”
To add to this, Wessex Garages have the very latest in diagnostic technology and will be offering GT-R and 370 Nismo owners a free diagnostic scan for their vehicle. The company’s fully-trained, factory technicians will be on hand to discuss parts and the technical support they can offer.
During the day visitors will be able to get their cars checked over free of charge and the first seven to book appointments will have a free optional car wash. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and each attendee will be given a Wessex Garages’ goody bag.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R will be available for pre-orders from April with the first deliveries scheduled in the autumn.
